Is it Spring yet?!

The sun is shining here, but it is soooo deceiving- only 28 degrees!  Yesterday it snowed- like everyone else, I'm done with snow!  The pond in our backyard is slowly starting to melt and believe it or not- I can see grass!!  It's brown and muddy, but I can see it!

Today I'm sharing a card with you that I absolutely love!  I found the tutorial for the card here.   She's got some pretty cool tutorials, so if you are looking for something new or unexpected to try, take a peek!

This card is called a Napkin Fold Card and as soon as I saw the tutorial I knew this would be something a kid would love!  In fact, I made it as a "thank you" for my friend's boys as they have been sharing their toys with my son.  They live by a creek and I new frogs are boy friendly so I gave this a try.

I used a TiddlyInks image called Little Hopper- Toadally Amazing.  I colored him with Copics (yeah, I didn't write those down- whoops!), used some Stickles for the glitter on the body and used Glossy Accents on the eyes.  The paper comes from Me & My Big Ideas- Mambi Sheets.

I know it looks complicated, but give it a try- the tutorial gives great instruction!  Enjoy!

Cool!  This card was recognized in the Sweet Six over at Cupcake Inspirations!
